A nice pair of casual slacks. Start the bottom of your outfit with a pair of pants that are comfortable but still help you appear put-together. Think dark wash jeans or a pair of khaki chinos. Something like this will keep you comfortable, but also looking professional for a day of meetings.
A luxury t-shirt. Working from home does allow for some more casual choices. If you want to opt for a sleek button-down, please do, but you should also feel free to dress your look down. If you choose to go with a t-shirt, make it a good one. No ratty, old, stained tees; go with one made of premium fabric that is comfortable while looking sharp.
A relaxed blazer. Throwing a blazer over your t-shirt will give your look a polished edge. A blazer means you haven’t given into the temptation of a work-from-home sweatshirt uniform. There are many great options out there for more athleisure-oriented blazers, made of more comfortable and versatile fabrics while still completing your look with a smart top layer.
A pair of slippers fit for a Queen. Maybe yours is a no-shoes household, or maybe you just want a more soothing footwear option since you aren’t heading into the office. Like I said, some wardrobe adjustments are allowed in a work-from-home moment. So, splurge on those comfortable slippers you have been ogling and finish off your virtual meeting look with a cloud to envelope your feet. While navigating a global pandemic, we all deserve a little comfort.
With these pieces, you are sure to impress while sitting comfortably at home.
My one last tip for your virtual meeting attire? Never go pantless. You may think that no one will ever see your bottom half on camera, but accidents can always happen. Maybe you leave your power cord in the other room or your notes get knocked under your desk. The last thing you want is for your boss to catch sight of your undies.
I hope these tips make your virtual work experience a little bit easier. If you have any questions.
